Matija Lisec shows his skills building, painting and weathering RG-31 Mk3 model from Kinetic. An impulse buy at a model show, Matija first wanted to get rid of the kit, but finally decided to build it... check it out!

So impressive, Matija!

I would like to know more about how you painted the brush guards on the headlights and signal lights while still getting the lights to look so good.

Thank you

It's nothing fancy, the brush guards were painted seperately and then attached. The lights were painted with clear paints

I didn't like RG-31 Mk3 at all. I thought it had a little bit strange silhouette, not so mighty as a real MRAP should have. But after seeing some models of it I've changed my mind. There are some excellent galleries of this vehicle's models in the web and this one has very big chances for the first place among of them. Great build, congrats

It's just a great work! I am building this model myself, and I looked at a lot of such machines on the Internet. Your work is really one of the best. Unfortunately, my build showed a defect in this set (and not only for me alone). The fact is that over time, from the loopholes on the windows appear radial cracks. Also I see, you made the wiring on the bottom. Did you use any reference materials? If so, could you help me with this?
